Smell is a dog’s primary sense and 15 minutes of sniffing is the equivalent of an hour of physical exercise!

Scentwork training is an exciting and fast-growing dog sport that more and more dog owners are turning to for its accessibility as well as its therapeutic benefits. Suitable for all breeds of dogs, we offer regular classes and one-off workshops for novice and experienced dogs.

Private Sessions

Scentwork training progression can vary significantly between dogs so individual attention from a dedicated trainer can be the fastest way to progress. These sessions are available for all levels including beginners, plus give you access to a trainer ‘chat’ between sessions for any questions.
We will teach you all areas of scentwork, including passive indications, structured searching and odour recognition. Dependent on ability, we can also organise off-site searches and progress to more challenging hides. Stamina must be built up which is why scentwork sessions tend to be a little shorter than usual training sessions.

Upcoming Scentwork Classes and Workshops

Our 4-week Beginners Course is the perfect introduction to the three areas of scentwork: structured searches, indication and odour recognition.
We also offer Intermediate classes, please enquire for more details.
